Psalm 147:11The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, In those that hope in his mercy.
God is pleased with those that realize that their money, their friends, their connections, science, and nothing else can help them like He can. He wants you to believe Him. God wants us to trust Him. He wants us to live thinking about what He is doing in our lives.
Some men were trusting their weapons. Some were believing their strength. God wanted people to trust Him.
The world we live in so separates us from God. We can live without thinking about Him. Science and medicine have significantly advanced. Psychology and politics are so advanced that we tend to live our lives almost oblivious to God.
We only call on Him when all else has failed. He is the last one we run to. When you can’t do anything else, it is time to pray seems to be our motto. Prayer and believing God are not for this time in history.
We all know that this attitude is wrong. We must focus on Him. We must believe Him. We must make every decision thinking about Him. He is God, and He alone can be our trust, our hope, and who we love and respect.
